The Texas Longhorns made a big splash this off-season with the addition of Coach Tom Herman to the Longhorn Football program. The Longhorns are now one of the hottest picks in the Big 12 as a dark horse candidate to win the title.

The premium Texas football publication Dave Campbell's will release mid-June and the cover boy will be the Longhorns' main man, Tom Herman. This is Herman's first time on the cover of the magazine.
